Hello! Thanks for stopping by. This is the blog of a 50-year-old woman who is living in Jeju, South Korea for at least a year, teaching English to grade schoolers.
I named the blog Under the Volcano because the island is dominated by Mt. Halla, an extinct volcano. I can see it from my patio. The island looks really cool from above – check it out on earth.google. The title also has implications of what this year holds: challenges, adventure and maybe some red hot lava. Just kidding, Mom.
NOTE: The banner photo is not Jeju – it came with the page. I will change it as soon as I get a good panorama of Jeju. Ironically, I think the photo is Ireland.
I hope this blog will inform my friends and families of my day to day activities, as well as inspire other women of a certain age to continue to reach for the brass ring. There is still a whole of living to do. I welcome your comments!
